Widerøe to Bridge Liverpool and Bergen

Described as Scandinavia’s largest regional airline, Widerøe, is to start operating a twice weekly service between Liverpool John Lennon Airport in the UK and Bergen in Norway.

The new service is set to commence on August 17 with departures on Mondays and Fridays with connections available in Bergen to other Scandinavian cities including Oslo (Norway) and Helsinki (Finland).

Widerøe will use their 114 seat Embraer E190-E2 jet aircraft on the route, in a move hailed as the first time this new generation jet aircraft will have operated to a UK regional airport.

Bergen is Norway's second largest city and also the gateway to the Fjords so this new direct service provides passengers the opportunity to either visit the city or the region’s fjordal area.
